Why did you choose Anesthesiology?
I started shadowing as a first year medical student and I found it so interesting that anesthesiologists could know so much about human physiology and manipulate it so precisely in the OR. From my first year I was hooked and kept shadowing and doing anesthesia rotations throughout my 4 years at UCLA.

Favorite thing to do in Chicago?
